Okay – So Maybe I’m Not the Sharpest Tool in the Shed!

My High Risk doctor wants me to see some other doctors for second opinions about these blackouts. He thinks it could actually be a form of seizures brought on by the pregnancy. There is a lot of concern if that was true – whether that would predispose me to Eclampsia in the last trimester. 

Now here is where the interesting story comes.

I’m filling out the paperwork at a new High Risk doctor’s office at UK. Now one of the questions asks about the father of the baby. Does he live with me? Yes. Is he related to me? YES. Do I have any other children with him? YES. 

I very quickly went through the checklist and turned my papers in. As they called me back they didn’t want Jose to come with me but for me to come back by myself. The nurse wanted to do a little counseling. She told me that I could feel safe to tell her anything I needed and that they often do this based off of the checklist I answered when I first came in. 

She asked me about 4 or 5 strange questions – was I married to the father – YES. Did I feel safe in my home – yes. Does my family know about the father and how do they feel about that.  – – FINALLY – – I asked her why was I being asked all of these questions. She said it was because I checked YES – I WAS RELATED TO THE FATHER!! LOL!! YUCK!

For some reason when I read that question I thought it said was I married to the father! I wondered why everyone was looking funny at me! I mean I know this is Kentucky – but wow! That’s 10 minutes of my life I’ll never get back!! 🙂

  1. I totally was reading what you wrote too, and thought that you answered all those correctly.. but I literally laughed out loud when I read the end. Nice, very nice. hehe

  2. You are so funny! I’m always anxious to read your blog — you crack me up! This one goes close to the top of the list!

  3. I caught it right away and thought she’s not related to him. Your not from A——-!:) Your from Kentucky. Just kidding. Good ole dig from Missouri.

  4. I agree with Kathie! This is a classic! I too feel like I’m related to my husband! They really need to find a way to rephrase that question!

  5. I absolutely love the story….hadn’t had a chance to read your blog…but was looking for pictures to see if Caroline arrived (don’t boo hoo) and saw your updates…
    Love you and miss you! These are the days I wish I didn’t have to go to work and could come visit!
